Synopsis

Trouble Sleeping tells the story of a Palestinian refugee, Ahmed, and his struggle to survive and remain a good man. He is about to be deported from the UK and be forced into a return to the Middle East which is fraught with danger. Another refugee, Halla, knows a secret which can save Ahmed but the cost of revealing that secret will have terrible consequences for her. Trouble Sleeping is based on the true stories of refugees in Scotland and was made with their direct involvement in all aspects of the production.
